Botanical Butterflies

Hi everyone!  I have card using the new JustRite Stamps set, Botanical Butterflies to share with you today.  I love the beautiful images in this set and isn't it great the JR is now making clear stamps too?  You can find this and all the JustRite stamps at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

This card uses some of my favy Six By Six "Everyday Flair" 6x6 pad.  Sigh, My Mind's Eye makes me super happy.  The flower is from the Prima Flower Market Alla-Prima package and is a perfect match to this paper.  
To make it easier to stamp and die cut the circle frame, I cut the stamp apart.  Yes, I have shown you all that it is easy to cut apart rubber stamps, but it is also easy to do with the acrylic stamps.  Just start the initial cut with your exacto knife and then get in there with some sharp slender snips (I use Tim Holtz scissors).  It is easy to put back together on your stamping block if you want to stamp them together.
If you are like me, and follow this blog with Google Reader, you probably haven't noticed that my blog posts are few and far between lately.  I am battling with some dental issues and what little spare time I have left goes to my family and some behind the scenes Spellbinders projects.  So, for the next month or so, I won't likely post more than once a week.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
